16GB of RAM needed, but what speed should I choose? Primarily for gaming, some video editing..

post #1 of 5

I have 16GB of G.Skill Ripjaws X RAM, 4x4gb sticks, but the kit isn't a very good overclocker :/
I do want a bit more performance, and I've been looking into the recently released Corsair Vengence Pro RAM kit. Any people used these new Corsair kits yet? Anywho, any help would be greatly appreciated smile.gif

If you are gaming primarily, then 16GB is a waste. What is your system configuration if you can provide with this

Nothing wrong with the RAM you have. Expecting some gain that you will really notice isn't likely.

Well I should've probably mentioned that I've dedicated 6gb of my total RAM space to a RAMdisk, and that I do use that quite a lot.
And I'm just looking to get a gain in this specific area, so any gain would be of value
